Wherein I convince myself to get with the program

Jul 24, 2008 by

Well, I’ve had a month of debauchery.  It involved sugar, booze, cheese, and whatnot.  It is time for me to get back on the wagon, and start eating like I know I should.  I use the word “should” not because someone is telling me what to do, but because I feel better when I eat correctly.

Having spent several days with Le Chef (aka my sister) I am so envious of her Farmer’s Market fresh fresh veggies and fruit.  It is easier to eat healthy food in California.  Here in Utah we have stupid produce.  Yes, I can go to Costco and get some organic produce, but it isn’t interesting like the golden beets or salad mixes at the Farmer’s Market.

Le Chef took me to the Penzey’s spice store and we bought me a whole new spice cabinet (well, not the cabinet, but the spices to go in it).  To celebrate I made curry which we will eat for dinner and I will eat for lunch tomorrow.  I believe it has about 5 different kinds of spices.  Fun!

For those of you not Utah natives, today is Pioneer Day.  The day my illustrious relative exclaimed “This is the place”.  I do, however, believe that he actually said, “Please God, let me die here” because he had Rocky mountain fever, but somehow in the folklore of Utah it was translated as “This is the place.” It is a state holiday, and that means I don’t have to go to work.  I am home “recovering” from my So. Cal vacation.  I have cleaned, organized my closet, made curry, and done laundry.   Yeah!  It is like having a pre-weekend to get my chores done.

So, tomorrow it is up at 6:15 and off to the gym.  Then it is healthy eating (no sugar and no Diet Coke).  I’m ready.  I can do it.

Oh hell, who am I kidding?  I’m going to go at it with white knuckles and crankiness.  I HATE that I can’t eat what I want.  I HATE that I have the metabolism of a dead person.  I HATE that I’m fat… and if I don’t change my evil ways I’ll DIE of some horrible disease like being suffocated by my fat rolls.

But today… today I will ease into this whole thing.

Like I might by 3 pints of Haagen Daz and have at it.

Note to the Entire Internet: Go here and be amazed.  My sister turned me on to this and you will love me for this.  FREE INTERNET RADIO.
